Rishi Kapoor: Troll is a synonym to Rishi Kapoor. He is no stranger to stirring up controversies by speaking his mind out on sensitive topics. This year he stepped into new controversy and was trolled for agreeing with Farooq Abdullah’s opinion that Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) belongs to Pakistan.
In simple terms, Dr. Abdullah said PoK belonged to Pakistan. “I tell them in plain terms – not only to Indians but also to the world – that PoK belongs to Pakistan and this side to India. This won’t change. Let them fight how many wars they want to. This won’t change,”
After Abdullah’s statement reached the news, Rishi Kapoor in a midnight tweet wrote:
Farooq Abdhulla ji, Salaam! Totally agree with you,sir. J&K is ours, and PoK is theirs. This is the only way we can solve our problem. Accept it, I am 65 years old and I want to see Pakistan before I die. I want my children to see their roots. Bas karva Dijiye. Jai Mata Di !

Ranveer Singh: Ranveer Singh, the very cool actor of Bollywood is too away from controversies. Unfortunately, his picture caption received a lot of hate. Without knowing the true meaning of the caption, the actor was trolled horribly. He shared the picture on social media and captioned it as, “Losing my religion.” But the truth is “Losing My Religion” is an iconic song by American rock-band REM.

Sonam Kapoor: The start of the year 2017 was quite a dull as Sonam Kapoor did something good but turned out to be controversial on social media. Sonam Kapoor has been trolled on social media over her comment on the national anthem. The actress was trolled for her opinion article in Hindustan Times’ campaign, ‘Let’s Talk About Trolls’, an awareness of online abuse and bullying.
A quote from Kapoor’s piece was shared online that read, “I love my country but for some of you — and you’re the bigots, not me — I become ‘anti-national’ only because I ask questions or choose to be critical. Listen to the national anthem…recall the line you heard as kids, ‘Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Issai…”.
In no time she became a target. Even without reading out the whole article, people jumped to the conclusion. Sonam Kapoor was reminded that the words ‘Hindu, Muslim and Sikh’ do not appear in the national song. Reacting to the trolls, Sonam Kapoor took to Twitter and wrote, “Thank you so much Twitter for the amazing response to my article and also to the #trolls who proved my point by the way they responded .”
Thank you so much twitter for the amazing response to my article and also to the #trolls who proved my point by the way they responded ?❤??
